's super pac is ready to put 2 million dollars into the race to replace jesse jackson junior in chicago. he is trying to head off democrats that have an a rating from the nra and we have mark kelly and his wife. they have a super pac they're trying to fund information and how politics plays such a big part in this. take a listen to mark on "meet the press." >> what we're going to do is support people running for office and we're going to oppose others unwilling to do something on this issue. we're going to spend money in the races. >> is an ai from the nra going o be a scarlet letter. >> i don't want to tie it to any one factor but for a long time the nra is the on one in town and the strength was exaggerated. back in november they spent more than $100,000 on more than seven senate races and lost in six. when you are the only game in town members of congress have a real struggle doing what most of them want to do which is keep the streets safe. the nra's support will be one thing the mayor looks at and the folk that is work on the super pac. the most important thing to take away from this,

saw someone like andrew jackson or harry truman campaigning against congress well and good. but it's only in recent years that you've had this almost nuclear game of chicken that we're seeing now. and we also saw in 1995 with bill clinton and newt gingrich. and i think one dangerous thing about right now is that on both sides, people tend to be a little bit sanguine in remembering 1995. through a political lens, there may even be some democrats who say it turned out to be good for the democrats because clinton was able to position himself as a moderate, keeping the barbarians from the gate. and on the republican side they can say yes, we took some heat for being confrontational, but didn't we win both houses of congress in 1996? so i think that memory is a very dangerous thing. and it certainly isn't a break on this rush to the edge of destruction that we're seeing right now. >> because the fights are over fiscal issues and economic issues broadly speaking, i have to ask about how much of a threat to the country we are seeing and how much actual damage we are seeing inflicted. i me

in the case of the attorney benjamin crumb pet working with the action jackson network on other cases and came and said he wanted to try to bring it national and help the petition drive go national, we were doing a good job and we called the rally that became the big rally that led to the special prosecutor. where race became involved, i think people need to be very careful. not with zimmerman. it's when the local police made a decision to let zimmerman walk and said there was no evidence of probable cause. and there had been tensions in sanford between the local community and the police department. it was our contention that the police department had violated the rights of trayvon martin. it was never about zimmerman in the beginning. it was how can the police say, we're going to decide zimmerman was innocent. i think mr. o'mara and others would do themselves well to understand that had the police proceeded the way the prosecutor has now proceeded, this may have never been a national issue. >> and reverend, you know, speaking a year later, sanford said it's made a lot of changes and working t
